I love my website work and I love it even more when my clients are happy with the results. Here are a few of their remarks:
“It was chance that threw me together with Marilla Wex, Web designer. We are Facebook friends and I happened to see her status saying she’d launched kvetchco and in a kismetty sort of way I messaged her and the rest is history (where history = my website). I liked the theory of her teaching you to drive the site yourself and though I was nervous about it, being not particularly geeky and netsavvy, she was a quite fantastic driving instructor. At the same time she was and is always there if I need/needed particular help with anything. I warned her that I was particularly pernickety and anal and fussy and would hone and hack at something until it was perfect and she rose to that challenge brilliantly. She never lost her patience and seemed to relish sorting out all the little things I wanted done and changed. Her instructions were always thorough, she was always fun and funny to deal with and she really really knows her stuff. Or if she doesn’t she’s excited about finding it out. And then she knows it.
If I was the sort of person who wrote Wikis for Wikipedia (and no doubt she’d teach me how in a couple of minutes on Skype or with a clear step-by-step email as usual), I’d put her name under the entry for Can-Do Attitude. I’m incredibly happy about the website. The feedback I’m getting about it from professional people, friends and people just passing through by mistake or design is fantastically positive. Above all I’ve enjoyed working with Marilla. I’ll have to find some excuse to build another website with her soon.” – David Schneider, British actor, writer and comedian who did, in fact, build a second site with me.
“Working with Marilla is a delight! She is amazingly caring and professional. Unlike so many other web designers–where your project can drag on for months–Marilla is so responsive and goal oriented that we had a usable website within a couple of weeks. The best part is that we now have a fabulously beautiful website (which we update easily and regularly), despite coming in to this process knowing nothing about making websites! Marilla delivers everything she promises and so much more! Choosing Rill as our website designer/coach was one of the best decisions we have ever made!” – Sruli and Lisa, Hootnannie.us
“I had attempted to build my own website as an actor using online templates and it was really hard to use, hard to update and frankly – looked rubbish. I asked Kvetchco to save me, mainly because I was so impressed with Marilla’s personal website – it was exactly what I wanted. The service I’ve received from Marilla has been amazing – from hand written notes on my Wordress for Dummies book (shipped speedily to me from Canada to the UK), really helpful webcam tutorial sessions, access to support all the time – it really is a fantastic service and such great value for money. One of the best assets for me is that Marilla understood exactly what I wanted my website to be, as an actor herself – she “got it” immediately whereas other designers who are more tech oriented, don’t often understand what a creative website should look like and what it’s for. Marilla has also given me some great design ideas and tips using her wide experience as a designer and a performer. She’s quite exceptional! I would highly recommend Kvetchco to anyone and am really really satisfied with everything they’ve done for me.” – Sally Reeve, British actress.
“The website that Marilla Wex designed for me has been a major factor in my passage from the life of an obscure adjunct teacher––where adjunct means “no job security, no benefits, no decent pay”––to go-to-guy for anything to do with Yiddish and many other aspects of Jewish culture. The site has brought me contacts and opportunities that I could never have acquired on my own; it is, in fact, the engine that powers my career as a public speaker and scholar-in-residence. I would recommend her to anybody seeking to raise their profile and broaden their contacts.
” – Michael Wex, New York Times best-selling author
“Thank you for being kind and patient with me while we created my website. It was a bit difficult to get used to using WordPress after using the inferior Blogger. Your steady tutelage was a comfort and a guide. I’m ever so glad to have met you. It’s not everyone who can give a client exactly what she needs, even if she does not exactly know what it is that she needs.
Usually I’ve been on the provider end of a client relationship when doing wedding cake consultations. Having a website just for me seemed at the time a bit self indulgent, but this Mommy needs a bit of me time. I like to use my blog to celebrate my Mom skills in the kitchen as well as all the things that make me whole person. Making this blog also got me out of a winter depression – everyone needs a creative outlet.
A Million Thanks!” – Victoria Stewart, green activist, single mom, naked baker and smoothie expert.
“Working with Marilla was both easy and fun.
Any questions or concerns I had were dealt with ASAP.
It was an absolute pleasure to work with her.” – Dave Healey, writer and performer.
“Marilla Wex and Kvetchco Inc. have transformed me from Cyber-Moron to Cyber-Genius, practically overnight!
My website needs as much attention as I want to give it: Sometimes I’m addicted to tweaking and blogging, and other times I just set it and forget it. But no matter, I’m in charge and I don’t need to track down a webmaster every time I need to update something. I can do it myself, and it’s super easy! The price is right, my site was up and running within hours and I wound up with exactly what I was looking for: A gorgeous, functional and completely personal website. And as a freelance performing artist, now I’m ‘out there’ 24/7 — and business is booming!! Brava Marilla! I’ve joined the 21st Century!!” – Joanne Borts, musical theatre actress.
“Building a blog can be a scary thing when you don’t know anything about it. I was avoiding it until I found Marilla. She broke down the whole “getting started” thing into pieces and walked me through it so it was quite do-able. I wish I had done it sooner. That said, I’m very proud of my new abilities and I owe it to Marilla – she was my coach and my cheerleader. (And she’s ridiculously affordable!)” – Inge Christensen, Thinking Coach
“Marilla built a website that’s as easy for me to tweak and expand as it is for visitors to navigate. Everything I could have wanted to add — audio and video content, an events calendar, rotating press quotes, and so on — was available in a heartbeat, and there was a wide variety of designs and colours from which to choose.Her video tutorials were clear and to-the-point, and the admin site is so simple and straightforward that I haven’t even needed to consult the free WordPress for Dummies book I got in the deal. And the working relationship doesn’t end when the site launches; Marilla is always checking in, asking about new ideas to add or change, always keeping up to date and looking for ways to keep the site’s look fresh.” – Jeff Cottrill, spoken word artist.
“Could there have been anyone more technophobic than I was 2 months ago? I earn a living by dipping a pen in an ink bottle and singing in a language with a shrunken number of native speakers. So, rather kicking and screaming, I took on the task of mastering posts and pages.Marilla has been the most utterly patient, clear, and cheer-leading mentor I could have imagined, and within a minute, it seems, I was up and running and completing my first commission from the website. Absolutely, having the site has opened doors for me, and the feedback I get on the beauty and richness of the content also reflects Rill’s gentle (and often humorous) encouragement.
I couldn’t imagine having come this far, affordably and happily, with anyone else as the person at the helm. RUN, don’t walk to Marilla Wex!!” – Susan Leviton, Yiddish arts expert
“As someone who shuns the idea of even entering into a dialogue about computers, websites, and cables and cords it was a breath of fresh air to have found Marilla Wex and Kvetchco Inc.
Marilla gave me clear and concise instructions that empowered me to push through my fear of technology and build my website to my creative standards. Any questions were answered within a timely manner and I never felt that my questions were either to silly or embarrassing to ask.
I can now upload video, text, photos and can adjust my website on my own time whenever I need too. Marilla did not only teach and guide me through the process of building my business website but she gave me the confidence and knowledge to work alone at my own pace.
Kvetchco Inc fit in my budget and surpassed my expectation and delivery.
She’s pretty darn cute too!” – Lauren Ferraro, voice coach
